Hi my husband was diag. in Dec. with Colorectal cancer stage iv that had spread to the omentum. He has had 2 cycles of Chemo. Oxaplatan and Ceptabine. told yesterday that the chemo has not worked in fact the cancer is worse. But his creatine levels are high and to go home and drink plenty of water and will check the levels next week. May want to try another type of Chemo. The Oncologist is not holding much hope because the first line of chemo. has not helped. Strange thing is that his CEA levels are going down. She told him with no chemo he has about 1 year to live. We are devastated. Getting a second opinion not a option, as when he was in the hospital in Dec. had seen someone else who pretty much told him the same thing with out any testing. Would appreciate any info on our situation.
